  • Great property and location

    Great property and location. A real home away from home. Will be back in the future. Hammer Springs is a really lovely place and an ideal spot for a restful break.

    Perfect location for exploring hanmer springs, a very short walk to the thermal pools and restaurants. Property was clean. Hob, oven and microwave available for cooking. We had issues with the hob and oven when staying, Alex was easy to contact to notify her of the issues. Toilet is outisde the front door but wasn't really an issue as access is undercover and private. Would certainly recommend for anyone exploring this area
